I'm really rather stoked the way all of these designs converged. Absolutely awesome. From DD's original design which inspired my tattoo design, to [rich]s vector on to the tattoo, and culminating in [rich]s 3D sculpt. Awesome!

El Mecanico T

Yes. Another David Lozeau post. What can I say? I'm a fan.

David's "El Mecanico" shirt has been out for a bit now, but I just learned that he has plans to get some work shirts printed up with this design on it and for THAT I'm so totally stoked. I freakin' LIVE in Red Kapp work shirts, so I'll be definitely scoring one of them when he has them in hand.

As for the Mecanico t's shown here; Good deal at $20, methinks. I think some folks go way overboard on pricing for screenprinted shirts and twenty bucks is usually about my threshold of what I'll pay.

As always, check out David's site for TONS of other goodies; original art, prints, sculptures and more! David also posts up videos and photos of painting progress which are always interesting.

As always, stay tasty!

Zook Skull Bat

Zook Skull Bat, a photo by [rich] on Flickr.

My good buddy, [rich] sculpted this based on my latest tattoo which was based on a doodle by our mutual friend DevilDust (Double D).

AND! He's sending it to ME! Squee!

How do I rate, eh?

Tasty, tasty!


Via Flickr:
Was up early this morning so thought I'd not waste the time and made my good friend Zook a little sculpt (he's always on at me for not sculpting enough skulls) - so here's one of his Flying Skull Bat tattoo emblem:


- hope ya like it Zook I'll send him over asap,

Lace Agate Jasper Skull Sculpture

Another AWESOME ebay steal. Picked up this bad boy for a whopping Ninety-five cents! Less than nine bucks with shipping. W00t! It's about 3X2X2 inches and weighs about half a pound.

Will make a very nice addition to my little growing collection of carved skulls...

Stay tasty!


Skull Cafe Racer Sculptures by David Lozeau

More awesomeness by David Lozeau!

"These bad boys were sculpted in clay, cast in resin, hand-painted, antiqued, and then clear-coated to achieve a distinctively British 1960s counterculture appearance. They make great gifts, shift knobs*, or desk accessories for motorcycle and car lovers!"

"Colors vary and inventory is extemely limited in this small run of custom sculptures."

Hand-cast in resin. From an original clay sculpt. And hand-painted. All that for only fifty bones! Tasty!

El Mecanico Necklace by David Lozeau

I'm a little late on this, but just re-discovered this beautiful necklace by the mad-talented David Lozeau.

From David's site:

"Based on David's "El Mecanico" painting, the Skinny Dog Design Group hand-crafted this 1.5" x 1" sterling silver pendant and paired it with an 18" sterling silver chain. From the intricate details on the bandanna to the tiny groves on the wrenches, this unique piece of jewelry exudes quality and style.

Each skull pendant is stamped .925, DLo, and Skinny Dog. Only 20 will be made in this special edition, licensed run."

Still some left! What a loverly piece of jewelry!

Always tasty!

More ebay skullage

Another ebay doozy. That's noice!
Like the previous skull, I love the hard, clean lines of this one.
Z to double "Oh" K!

Cyborg Skull

I. So. Want this. Now! But I don't see any buying links. Course, I don't read Japanese, so maybe I'm missing something?
Whoop! Found a bronze-colored on ebay, but don't like it nearly as much.
Always tasty,

Skull Mug

So. Over the summer I blogged about the awesomely skully work of skeletaldropkick. I had finally gotten around to ordering one of her kick ass skull tiki mugs and, within six hours of receiving it, dropped it on the concrete in the parking lot of work while getting on the bike.

Needless to say I was heartbroken.

For one reason or another I had not gotten around to ordering a replacement (cheap bastard), but today a friend of mine sent me a text that she was drinking out of a mug with a jolly roger on it and that it had made her think of me. I responed that _I_ needed a mug with a skull on it and promptly headed over to etsy and, within minutes, had purchased a replacemnt mug!

Yaaayyy!! Can't wait for this baby to show up.

And that brings me to my NEXT point. Back when I ordered my mug this summer I had talked with the Skeletaldropkick about possibly doing a giveaway. She was kind enough to offer up another one of a kind Skeletaldropkick mugs for me to offer to one of our loyal readers (we do have some, right?). So. Long overdue: I have another mug, similar to the one displayed here, in white, that I would like to give away! Yaaayyyy! Free skull mug! I'll even take care of the shipping so long as you reside in these united states!

How, you may ask, should be able to obtain such a prize? Good question. Hmmm... Lemme think for a moment. I hadn't planned this out very well...

Tiger's Eye Skull

So. I was given a really cool skull carved from labradorite over the weekend and I instantly fell in love with it. I loved it so much I decided to do some shopping over on e-bay for other gemstone skulls and ended up winning this beauty! I didn't do much research so I'm not sure if I got a good deal on it or not, but I really don't care. It didn't break the bank and I think it kicks ass pretty hard. I used to love Tiger's Eye as a kid, so it's kind of [insert that word I can't remember here].

Anywho! Just wanted to share. Carry on.

Stay tasty.

Skull House

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know I mention this guy a lot, but I just bought my fourth skull from Skullhouse and had to tell SOMEone!!
This is Cyrus' Amber Celadon Holes Skull and it RAWKS, right? Cyrus says, "Subtle layered texture and circular carved holes cover the surface of this tectonic skull. It is glazed in my rich honey yellow amber celadon." Whatever. That must be potter speak for, "THIS THING KICKS ASS NOW BUY IT!!!11", or something.
Ok. Just gloating. Do yourself a favor and go buy one or two of these things. If you do, please tell him Zook sent ya.
Stay tasty, people.

Skull-a-day sez: "Danish Graffiti-Artist decay “short for Decadence, long for DK - Denmark” told us that they only paint skulls"
I was unable to track down any more information on the artist, though I only did a quick google search, so I guess the facebook page linked from skull-a-day will have to suffice for now. If anyone knows anything more about the artist, I'd be thrilled if you'd share.
Happy Friday and stay tasty!

Skulls On Board

Skullhouse. One of my favorite shops at etsy.com These slip cast skulls, created by the mad-talented "Cyrus The Potter" are amazing to behold. I currently own three Skullhouse skulls and am certainly not done.

One of Cyrus' latest, "Skulls On Board" is a grouping of four porcelain skulls with a dry metallic surface that he's paired with a salvaged wooden "shelf". Looks amazing.

Plenty of more details at the Skullhouse listing for this beautry at Skullhouse on etsy.com

Cheers! Stay tasty!

Beneath The Skin

A while back I was contacted by the very talented Dauvit Alexander who asked if I'd be interested in providing a tattoo design to be used in Beneath The Skin, an art show he'd been invited to participate in. I gladly accepted, worked out a design and shipped it off.

Beneath The Skin: Final Inks

The project has several steps, the first of which was the original tattoo design as shown. Next Dauvit is using the design as inspiration for creating a custom-built tattoo machine which will feature, among other things, the skull and heart as pictured; hearts cast in copper, skulls in silver.

Beneath The Skin (WIP) 41

Beneath The Skin (WIP) 21

The final step of the project, as planned, will be to have the original design tattooed onto Dauvit's calf, possibly as part of the "Beneath The Skin" show itself.

Dauvit does some truly amazing metalworks, specializing in jewelry. I'm fortunate to own a custom-made bracelet that Dauvit created for me and I must say that man is a master. Do check out his other works at Flickr: The Justified Sinner

Cheers! And stay tasty!

This was really a fun design to work on. We went through a number of variations before this one just sort of clicked into place just before I decided my skillset wasn't right for the project.

Thanks for following along.
